Get Cozy with Flannel…

Flannel shirts are warm & cozy and remind me of cooler nights and sitting by a fire. I wanted to create that feeling with paper so I started grabbing products that would help me create a background paper that reminded me of my favorite flannel shirt….

The Buffalo Check background stamp will work for the base,  I will add the detail lines with the Stampin’ Blends, using both the fine and brush tips. To give it the texture I wanted I use the Subtle embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. I created three different pieces with totally different colors….

…and from these three pieces I created a Fall, Christmas and Valentines day card. It really is hard to stop when you start playing with the different color combinations.

Stampin’ Blends…

Stampin’ Blends markers can be used to color in images, create backgrounds and so much more, today I decided to create my own colored paper to punch out for the light bulbs. This would be a fun technique to use with other punches and die cuts.

i am using the Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Real Red Stampin’ Blends, I colored an area on a scrap of whisper white paper in each color trying both the light and dark shades of each color. Once I found the shade I liked I punched out several of each.

The galvanized metallic paper was perfect to add as the socket, I punched them out and used a glue dot to attach them. To create the string for the lights I used the garden green bakers twine, I attached it to the front and inside the card with glue dots.Once the images were stamped in memento black ink I was ready to add the light bulbs.

To finish off the card I added a few rhinestones and an accent swoosh on the light bulbs with Wink of Stella.


To create this card you will need….

  • Night of Navy card stock- cut 1 at 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″
  • Granny Apple Green Card stock- cut 1 at 3″ X 6″, score at 5 1/2″, attach to the Night of navy to create a flap
  • Whisper White card stock- cut 1 at 5 1/4″ X 2 3/4″ front, cut 1 at 4 3/4″ X 2 1/2″ inside, scrap to color and punch out light bulbs
  • Galvanized Metallic paper – cut 1 piece at 1/2″ X 12″, punch out sockets for ]light bulbs
  • Santa’s Workshop Designer series paper cut 1 red polka dot at 4″ X 5 1/4″, adhere to the night of navy covering the where you attached the Granny Apple Green

More with Lots of Lavender!

I had so much fun creating cards with the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I created these three cards using the narrow note cards and envelopes from the 2018 Occasions catalog. The note cards were the perfect size for both the bouquet or spray of flowers and with the two-step stamping adding color to the outline images is easy. if you would like a bolder image color them in with the New Stampin’ Blends.

This stamp set can be yours for Free with a $50 purchase 🙂 during Sale-A-Bration!

Here is a list of supplies I used to create these three note cards, click on any product and it will direct you to my online store!
